The BGMS team would like to give a special congratulations to two of our Year Six students, Caitlyn Low and Rafael Widjaja.

Over 500 students from across Western Australia submitted their stories and poems to the Scribbler’s Writing Festival Golden Pen competition, where three famous Australian authors read through the all the entries before shortlisting them and picking a winner. Only three entrants were shortlisted for the prize in the Years 4-6 category, and amazingly, both Caitlyn and Rafael made it to this final stage!

This meant that they were both lucky enough to attend the Golden Pen Award Ceremony this last weekend, where Caitlyn was awarded first prize in the Golden Pen Junior Division!

We are very proud of Caitlyn and Rafael for all the hard work and dedication they put into their writing. You can read their poems here.
